Holding you in the light as well, as you get your prayer life back on track and dig for the deep answers on your journey toward living a healthy life. "Love others as you love yourself" reminds me that I have to know how to love myself. Love, being an action word, means I have to ACT on loving myself too. That means treating myself like I would a best friend, or someone we love very much. We would encourage a loved one that needs to be healthy to move more and even cook healthy for them, but why not ourselves then? This is part of the journey I am learning, for self-sacrifice as love is something that was ingrained in me at an early age through church and family. No where have I read that it helps others to self-neglect or self-abuse ourselves. Love. Love is key. It's almost too simple for us to accept. Love others, love ourselves, but love Him most of all. We have to get the foundation right first for the house to stand. (((hugs))) and peace to you!!! 1116 days ago
It sounds like you and hubby have a great deal between the gardening and cooking. Unfortunately, it's the other way around for us. I prefer to garden and hate to cook, while he doesn't mind to cook as long as I tell him WHAT to cook. lol. We make it work somehow, most days.
You're so right, having the attitude that it's "just hair" is the only way to be. It certainly does relieve a lot of useless stress. I consider it a point of creativity too, and have even considered letting my hair turn into dreadlocks. Just haven't been that brave in case they mess up then I would have to chop them off - I don't like my hair to be short. I'm a bit bohemian in nature, much to the confusion of most of our relatives. lol. 1134 days ago
